Nulgath's Farming Balance Changes and Bug-Fixes

  • ALL of Nulgath farming quests have had their gold and exp rewards increased. Any other increase of gold and exp rewards mentioned below is in addition to the previous adjustment.
  • Key Master was wrongfully giving Unidentified 13 non voucher quest. It has been removed
  • Undead Caster, Ghoul, Imps were fixed to no longer give the Unidentified 13 Voucher on the Contract of Nulgath Voucher Exchange.
  • Brutixx now correctly gives the Unidentified 13 quest item for all Contracts quests
  • Drop-rate for Unidentified 13 with voucher of Nulgath has been decreased. However after testing it was slightly increased.
  • Diamond of Nulgath: Crag’s Thirst now only requires x50 Bags of dirt instead of x100 for the exact same rewards
  • Diamond of Nulgath: Unidentified Essences quest drop-rate has been significantly increased.
  • Diamond of Nulgath: Dark Deal quest intentionally did not require a Contract of Nulgath. That requirement has been re-instated.
  • Removed Mini bosses from Uni 13 voucher quests. In addition, the drop rate for the quest item was reduced, however it was accidentally reduced by too much, so it has been slightly increased.
  • Fixed typos on Voucher of Nulgath quests and more specifications have been added to the quests
  • Fixed typos on regular Uni13 Contract of Nulgath; Catacomb Crawling
  • Dark Crystal Shards: Fiend Dragon Blood Contract Requirement has been removed
  • Diamond of Nulgath: Contract Exchange has been retired due to the quest being too powerful and profitable to the point of becoming a balance issue for the overall experience and resources economy balance
  • Phoenix Blade was moved from Akriloth Group Challenge into Akriloth Extreme (you can do unscaled) for the design of these farming quests. To more easily display it’s movement, the loot table from Akriloth Extreme challenge was updated to show the Phoenix Blade on it on release. In addition to this, and in order to display even more clarity, all Akriloth Extreme and Group Challenge items now display on the loot tables of their respective dungeon entrances UI
  • Dark Crystal Shard now only stack up to a maximum of x100 as a unique stack. If you currently have more than x50 (more than 1 stack) YOU GET TO KEEP THOSE and utilize them however you want.
  • Tainted Gems, due to being a passive resource and due to how vastly they are rewarded across all quests, will NOT be limited to an unique stack
  • Brutixx now properly Drops the Dark Crystal essence on Dark Crystal Shard: Fiend Hunting
  • Phoenix Guardian’s Phoenix Runes quest sending you to Chess Hall now properly sends you to Akriloth Challenge map
  • Phoenix Blade of Nulgath repeatable quests have been correctly re-added to Skew, to give you the ability to do the quest again if you choose to (or if you accidentally deleted your Phoenix Blade of Nulgath, more of a future proof addition). Before the quest went missing if you had the Quest Tittle reward
  • A new Nulgath’s Reward preview shop has been added to Skew for players who do not know what the Phoenix Blade of Nulgath looks like. Moving forward all Nulgath farming quests rewards will show up on this shop or a variation of this shop
  • Bag of Dirt: Necromancy Deal Gold and Exp rewards have been significantly increased.
  • Essences of Nulgath Defeated Makais Gold and Exp have been significantly increased
  • Tainted Gems: Essence of Nulgath now gives x15 Tainted gems as rewards instead of x10
  • Dark Crystal Shards: A Tainted Deal now requires x150 Tainted gems instead of x100 to get x10 Dark Crystal Shards.
  • Dark Crystal Shards: Fiend Hunting Drop-rate has been lowered
  • Dark Crystal Shards: Fiend Hunting gold and exp rewards were increased
  • Essence of Nulgath: FiendZards gold and exp rewards have been increased
  • Essence of Nulgath: Catacombs Crawler gold and exp rewards have been increased
  • Contract of Nulgath and Diamonds of Nulgath gold values have been inverted due to contracts being slightly too profitable:
    • Contract of Nulgath 100K -> 50K
    • Diamond of Nulgath: 50k -> 100K
